Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
NY de Volunteer, a Japanese Community organization, aims to be an information and community portal for people interested in volunteering. We create a forum for people to contribute their time, skills and enthusiasm through volunteering, raise awareness of the social and community issues and encourage our community to feel a stronger connection with the larger NY community. NY de Volunteer was formed to mobilize our community for a positive social change by promoting volunteerism and increasing participation of caring people who have time, willingness and expertise but had little access to information and opportunities on their own. By organizing group volunteer activities, soliciting information sharing, and providing diverse opportunities to participate, NY de Volunteer makes it easier for our members to take their first step in giving back to the community.
